Windows 7 RC 1 and higher CPU temps.

Just as topic says did you ppl experience higher temps (both load and idle) since channging from Vista ? I did check everything else, fans are same speed, filters are clean. Have checked with several different programs and I always have 3-5c higher temps in W7. Performance settings are the same too....

SpeedFan is name you are looking for. You can find list of motherboards that are particularly good when it comes to controlling fans with it. And it's free too.

High-Performance Mini-ITX test at Xbitlabs

Xbitlabs has a very nice article about Intel DG45FC and Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi together with E7500. Some really interesting numbers they got there. I am impressed how little power this particular CPU uses vs it's performance. It's as good or better then good ol' days E6600 ! Anyways here's the ...

When you alter the rpm of case fans, how do you do it? I've only used Zalman fanmates, and I have no idea how to voltmod a fan or anything such. Where would be a good place to read up on that?

Only way to silence that fan is to not run it at all. Seriously, 2600Rpm and 116cfm ! There is no need for that fan i PC world.

What high pitched noise? A fan shouldn't make high pitched noise. A working fan with bearings in good working condition should not make a high pitched noise nor vibrate excessively so there we agree .

As long as your temps are fine it's no issue att all. Although my ninja (first version, still going strong) does get warm, but only if I run encoding for an hour or two. And thats with noctua 120mm running at 10v. CPU is E6600@3.6Ghz running at 1.52V.
